Torabhaig Single Malt Distillery on the Isle of Skye closes the current chapter of its Torabhaig Legacy Series with a limited edition batch strength release straight from the cask.
As the temperatures begin to nosedive across Asia, it’s time to leave the martinis and margaritas and instead reach for the soul-hugging, belly-warming libations of Scotland, and in this case, the single malt wonders of the Isle of Sky in the Hebrides.
Torabhaig Single Malt Distillery on the Isle of Skye has released the new limited edition Torabhaig Allt Gleann Batch Strength. This special edition, batch strength release of Allt Gleann completes the current chapter of the Torabhaig Legacy Series, which charts the journey to 10 year old for this exciting new distillery.
The release bottled unreduced shows the confidence that this young distillery has in the quality of its whisky and highlights the strength of its emerging signature style: well tempered peat. It is drawn directly from a select batch of casks and sings of smoke and brine.
Heavily inspired by the spectacularly rugged coastline on which the distillery sits, Torabhaig tames heavily peated grains to produce an elegantly rugged dram that balances strength with refinement to accentuate the floral, fragrant character of the whisky.
Allt Gleann is named after one of the natural spring water sources that feed the Torabhaig distillery, which sits on a historical site on a rugged coastline. While the distillery has only been operational since January 2017, it is only the second single malt distillery on the Isle of Skye in almost 200 years.
The 19th century distillery building is an old farmhouse that was painstakingly restored over a four-year period. The historic nature of the building has proven a welcomed creative constraint in terms of the still size and distillery layout, leading to a boutique spirit that’s smacks of its locale.
